Introduction to Revelation

The Book of Revelation is a favorite Bible study for all those who look
forward to our Lord’s return and the events surrounding it on all sides.
Because of its literary genre (apocalyptic – rich in symbolism, some
of it internally interpreted, much not) the book contains some mystery and
tons of fascination for students of biblical prophecy and lots of room for
interpretive controversy. Way too many self-styled prophecy experts with
their end-time charts speak with vastly more confidence about such things
than they really know. You should know that. Any interpreter must approach
this book with some humility, for it is, by its very literary nature, not
all so simple to interpret as some would have you think.

This much I do know however: the big point of the book of Revelation is
this, that in the end we (God’s people) win, we win big and in the interim we
have God’s help. So soldier on, keep the faith, fight the good fight, and
after the battle, rule and reign with Christ forever. Unlike what you may
have heard, there really is no click-click-click ‘calendar’ of future events
in Revelation, though there is much information about the future. This is
not a book for Christian ‘crystal ball gazers.’ This is a book for suffering
saints persevering in a mean world that is not at all user-friendly for the
saints. Everything about it says you may be sideswiped, get your fenders
dented, yes, even lose your life, but in the end it will be worth it all.
How one interprets this or that vision or the timing of this or that event
maybe debatable, but the overall message, I think, is not.

Introduction to Psalms

The Psalms comprise perhaps the most generally beloved literature in all of God’s word.  The reason for that is not a puzzle.  The psalms, many penned by King David, are so personal and addressed to God “out of the pits” where, at one time or another (or better yet many times) all of us believers […]
